Fallingwater, Mill Run
(4.7/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
A Frank Lloyd Wright house built over a waterfall, Fallingwater was named the "best all-time work of American architecture" in 2007 by the American Institute of Architects. The family house was commissioned by Edgar Kaufmann Sr., and Wright welcomed the challenge. Kaufmann once dared to go behind Wright's back to consult an engineer about the risky design. Wright was so offended that he threatened to leave the project. Kaufmann relented, and Wright buried the engineer's report in one of the walls. The house was the Kaufmann family's weekend retreat until 1963, when the family gave it to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, which opened it to the public. Notice the remarkable furniture--Wright designed it specifically for the space. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Fallingwater by using our Mill Run tourist route planner.

  • This is one of the most famous residences designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. To be admired from all angles as you walk around the home. The waterfall was never meant to be seen from inside the home. 
  • The environment is a nature reserve that is with its beautiful autumn colors. Both the Oaks and the sweetgum and other trees the House, for those who enjoy good architecture, is a must. We toured it with a guide who told us the story of the same and their owners. The most amazing thing is that a House from 1937 might be a modern design. How it integrates perfectly to nature having most advanced comforts of the time.

  • I need to return and take the in depth tour, but the normal one hour guided tour takes you throughout Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural gem and includes the guest house. The design of the house takes local nature into consideration and has small touches like desks that accommodate the opening of a door. A must for any architecture fans.
  • A definite must for fans of architecture and a very interesting house even if you're not. The surround area is beautiful and the house itself has many unique properties. The tour guide did a great job showing us around and explaining everything. Would love to come back and visit in other seasons.
  • I enjoyed walking through this Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home. If I went again, I think I'd go for the pricier and longer tour for more information and picture-taking opportunities. The place is an extraordinary house.
  • The quintessential "architectural dream".....everyone should have the opportunity to live in a house like this. An adventure in living in concert with the environment. How I wish this house was MINE. So very well operated and maintained. The guided tour is WELL WORTH the admission price.
  • Gorgeous historical landmark, pictures do not do this place justice. I highly recommend this place in the fall when it is cooler and the leaves have changed. Tours are a bit pricey, but it is to ensure that the place stays in tacked.
